Very hard to obtain but worth it !
30 September 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I managed to obtain this from a seller on Ebay (quite expensive).

The picture quality was very, very poor (B- or lower) but from a distance it was watchable. I don't know why I'm complaining - this is extremely rare ! Anyway, this short was a different approach on interviews. I mainly watched it, thinking that Woody Allen was interviewing Godard (the title states the opposite, but I was wishful thinking) but when you watch and observe Godard's curiosity into Woddy's style & structure of film-making, it becomes very profound and interesting.

Godard just sitting there puffing away at his cigar letting his questions just roll off his tongue.

Woody on the other side, sometimes seems nervous - as if there might be an intellectual clash.

It could have been longer but try and obtain a copy if you get the chance
